Couponing is a hobby of mine. I love to clip them, organize them, get $180 worth of groceries for only $12. (Oh yes, I did!) Not everyone feels the same about those wonderful pieces of paper though. My friends have told me that that they don’t use enough coupons to make it worth the trouble to cut them out.
I am going to show you that it IS worth it, even if you only use one coupon a week. One .50 coupon a week adds up over the course of a year.
.50 x 52 weeks = $26.00 a year!
That’s $26.00 you didn’t have before you used only 1 coupon a week. You can go to the movies, buy a pair of shoes, pay down a bill, buy a couple of books. Now think of what you could do if you used 2 coupons a week!
Start by just cutting out the coupon(s) you want to use – there’s no need to cut them ALL out. An important thing to remember is to only choose a coupon for something you would normally buy, like detergent or shampoo.

I’ve been getting quite a few manufactors coupons recently. We don’t get the paper. Where do you get most of your coupons?
And if they double coupons…even better! I like your logic. I’m an avid couponer, so I save a lot more than that. But it shows you…taking ten seconds to clip a coupon for 50 cents…can save you a lot over time!
Makes perfect sense! I have struggled with using coupons wondering if it is worth it… you have convinced me that it is, thanks! Coupons are once angain my friend :0).
